    I'm downloading now. The update is only 75.7 MB on my iPhone X; as I understand it, that makes it unlikely to be the final beta. And after install, I notice the Version is 15E5216a, so we'll definitely be seeing a beta 7.

    I suspect we'll see beta 7 next week sometime. My thought is Apple wants to officially release the 11.3 update at their Chicago event on the 27th.

    What's so great about 11.3 vs 11.2?

    Nothing is great about it, it is just Apples new iOS version and if I can help them make it great then that's what it's about.

    Right, my iPhone X is working fine with 11.2 now and I have no bugs (at least that I've noticed so far).

    Are these incremental updates from 11.2 to 11.3 just big fixes or can they bring new features to the table?

    What I would really like to see on iOS is a proper file manager (not like the one they have now which just combines all your other cloud storage into one but an actual system file explorer like on Android) and the ability to change camera settings from within the Camera app rather than having to go through settings.

    One thing I did notice on my iPhone X, I don't know if it's the phone having a weak WiFi or it's an OS bug, but on my Android phones the Wireless connection seems to be way faster. With the iPhone X, if I connect to the WiFi, it's much slower than my LTE although I have a Netgear X10 Router and a 100MBPS Down/20MBPS up connection)

    That is one thing I hope that can be improved is the Wireless LAN connection

    For me, message sync to iCloud. Now I can do a fresh install and get my saved messages, plus all of my devices will have the same message store. (The battery status on my iPhone 6s was also good to see.)

    When a build number ends with a letter, it’s never the final build. So yeah as you said, at least one more build to come.

    I have an iPhone SE that I normally run betas on, just to see how they perform and maybe report some feedback; though my daily driver is an X. In my case, I updated to 11.2.6 (as I recall to protect myself from the iMessage bug) but started having slow downs and crashes with some apps. So, since 11.3 was running well on the SE, I updated to 11.3 on my X -- and it seems to have solved the issues I was having with 11.2.6.

    I actually expected an upgrade already, either yesterday or today. At this point, I'm thinking maybe Friday but also maybe next Tuesday.

    Either GM comes tomorrow or they don't release the GM and just release the official Tuesday. That's my guess.

    It wasn't 11.2.6. It was 11.2 and back in December. They released an official on that Saturday because they released the GM on a Friday and it included a fix where people phones were rebooting on 11.1 once it hit midnight. Apple had to rush the GM out right away to the public. So this was a different situation.
